I would like to let you know a little about myself. I grew up in a small town in southern Oklahoma. My husband and I wanted that small town feel for our children, James, who is a sophmore at SFA and Matthew, who is a 8th grader at Edge Middle School. This was our impetus for moving to Nevada where we have lived for the last 17 years. I have been teaching at one place or another for most of my life. Prior to teaching in Texas, I was an adjunct professor for 4 years at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. There, I taught classes in astronomy, physics, and general science. When we moved to Texas, I began teaching in Dallas ISD. I have been teaching here at Community for 14 years. The subjects I have taught include astronomy, anatomy, environmental science, physics, forensics, chemistry, and robotics. Currently at CHS, I am teaching Forensics and Environmental Science. The Environmental Science is being taught through Collin College where I am an Associate Professor of Environmental Science.
I have a love for science and the desire to pass that love on to others, I want my students to see the wonder of the universe and understand the special place we hold in it. I want them to be able to distinquish science from pseudoscience so that they will become better informed stewards of our world.
The best way to contact me is through email which I check throughtout the day and I will response as soon as possilbe usually by 5pm of that day. I will be available for conferences afterschool Monday - Thursday until 5 pm.
